The national voice for Australian dairy farmers

John Versteden

John Versteden is a dairy farmer from Gippsland, south-east Victorian and a recently appointed representative to the ADF National Council, elected to the position in 2015. John has a long history of industry involvement, including holding former leadership positions as Central Councillor of the United Dairyfarmers of Victoria (UDV) and Director of Gippsdairy.

John is the current Chair of Dairy Australia’s Dairy Industry People Development Committee and played an instrumental role in the formation of the National Centre for Dairy Education Australia.

John, in partnership with his wife, Lyn, commenced farming at Longwarry in Gippsland after migrating from the construction industry. The Versteden’s have since progressed through the various stages of share farming, leasing, and now ownership. John and Lyn have two adult daughters.

John holds a view that dairy farming has been and still is one of the most rewarding careers, both personally and financially, that people can choose to be involved in.
